We are taking part in this year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge. It’s the UK’s biggest match-funded campaign and will enable us to double the value of your donations meaning your support will have twice the impact!

The week-long challenge runs from Tuesday 28 November until Tuesday 5 December and, with the help of our supporters, we aim to raise £10,000. The total raised will then be doubled by match-funding from our corporate supporter Beyondly and our Big Give champion funders, Mike and Helen Brown. In April, we participated in the Big Give’s Green Matching Appeal where we raised a fantastic match-funded total of £10,000 in one week – an amount we are hoping to double with our Christmas challenge.

We recently launched our 10th anniversary fundraising campaign which aims to raise £1 million over the next two years. Funds raised from the Big Give Christmas Challenge will be the first step towards reaching this target, allowing us to continue our projects and provide support to vulnerable communities.

With your support, we can transform the lives of people living in communities most severely impacted by the global waste crisis. WasteAid works to give individuals the skills, expertise, support, and investment to empower them to earn a decent income from waste management and recycling.

Together we can reduce pollution from plastic, organic, textile and electrical waste, alleviate poverty by creating sustainable employment opportunities, and develop an inclusive circular economy that works for the benefit of all. A donation of £30 can buy a complete community recycling kit for one village and just £2 could buy a simple mould which turns organic waste into valuable fuel. So why not take the opportunity to see your impact doubled?
